LAKELAND, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Big changes are underway in Lakeland.

Since former Shelby County Commissioner Wyatt Bunker became mayor of Lakeland in October 2013, the city's administration has received a major makeover.

Mayor Bunker has fired several top officials, including the city manager, who he replaced with fellow commissioner Chris Thomas.

Last week the Bunker administration dismissed four others, including the human resources administrator and the city planner.

Mayor Bunker said more cuts are expected.
